  1. P.S. am 74 years young so cannot wait TOO long for a reason ....
  2. It is a bit disappointing that purpose of a mini meeting for CD harness racing was to save costs by running with the greyhounds... good thinking as good for industry. however with damage to Whanganui surface the dogs moved to wednesday so logical mini harness would move too. but alas" logics" not a word often associated with Harness racing and no movement . Perhaps the person would like to justify their decision .
  3. Wonder if they would be keen on a straight property swap with my 3 bedroom home.in Whanganui. LOL...
  4. after a long delay Mr R Cameron has received a 3 month suspension and no fine or costs. It seems a long and fair decision by the JCA. The race after the "bad driving decision" possibly made the excuses put forward redundant. Hopefully Saginaw can go on and win many more races.
  5. my error only 11 breakers in first 2 races. very hard to bet on these races... does not happen in USA 2 warnings for breaking then an extended "spell"' and race 8 if Nat had not looked around in the straight may have held 1st as only slight adjustment made.. to cost husband the win,
  6. I wonder if anyone including the "whale" would be brave enough to pick an all up on race 1 and race2 at Addington tonight. A better fun bet may be estimating breakers in the 2 trots. my guess around 12. most serious punters will start at race 3 (5:26 pm)
  7. Unfortunately we need fuel so a comparison lost with TAB risking losing customers unless fairness is maintained . most can live without an investment to return nil profit or 20% when risk considered.
  8. Quinella of night.. quotedabove . came in fantastic but tab theft paid $1.00 !!lol also in earlier race 8 Tab betting on late scratchings meant divs obviously would drop but must have been tab feeling tOO exposed on fav Pauly D on ff.so dropped ff from 3 to 2. same as tote 3 to 2.but just at close suddenly tote droppedfrom 2 to 1.10 and paid 1.20.and 1.30 place. such a late drop all ups ? big punt last min? but more likely TAB (imho) placing big money to square ff pay outs. Am I getting paranoic in my old age or is there smoke about ?
  9. Seeing we both wrong ,it was stated that Ms Telfer was to be in charge of the new Canterbury set up and Steve to handle Auckland... and it is a big operation and a successful one, thoroughly deserved..
  10. Sorry George and mrs Amanda Telfer was aware of the training arrangement . my mistake. agree all the money heading Alta wiseguy but logics say B D Joe .... must be quinella of night.
  11. Bit rich wanting ideas for future use of land.(even if it provides warm " fuzzies" for those making suggestions) .More importantly to see who ends up with the funds from sale. AND is it not the purchaser who decides its destiny ?? Why. has sale of equipment/memorabilia been put off indefinitely. ? could be like gavel house held electronically if covid the excuse. Maybe HRNZ or Racing Authority need the sales of all property say 10 to 20 mill. to help pay a portion of Aucklands reported $90 million debt.
  12. Agree eljay no blame on Mr Telfer,good for him. yes it is a sad trend for harness racing and perhaps the "experts" might like to see reality instead of stating how great things are going...
  13. Hard to believe only one trainer has horses for race 10 at Auckland this friday I know he is a great asset to harness racing but a $20000 payday for him and his clients . Good luck to him but what is the reason for this strange race ? (are we going to the dogs !!?)
  14. Thanks Mr ED, for above post. still another delay for "sentence" I will not comment until this done today, but would like to say Saginaw is a very very good horse and all refs to reasons why a simple clear passage was not taken appear to be ......
  15. Is my tv playing up or is the mighty TAB cost cutting by not putting info on first 4 runners during the . race ? Or is the only person that could handle this an Aucklander ? Not a biggie as was often a half lap behind !!! the other thought was divies shown changing during the race was deemed not a good look and explained as old equipment, someone will enlighten me (or did I just miss the memo ? lol)
